Also I would like to know to listeners that Mrs. Celia Cruz passed away a few years ago To buy this Cd is up to you One shot deal failed. This Concord label debut for Warwick is her first outing for a major record label since she departed Arista in I would advise her to seek new material suited to her current vocal range.
Leave the past behind. She is wise to know that she can't top herself. It is bad karma to keep reaching back. Concord record execs should consider acquiring license to reissue that CD.
This one is a miss. Musically it is too contrived. By now, after decades of touring with the Bacharach-David catalog of songs, Warwick sounds bored with the material. I also want a orchestra to back her on her future recordings. Calling strings and horns!! Quincy Jones needs to be summoned to the rescue!
The cheesy musical arrangements do nothing to compensate for her raspy vocals. Good versions of the classics. It's great to hear Dionne and her famous friends singing some of her biggest hits Celia, Olivia and Gladys are my favs I bought this CD because I am still a fan of this legendary Diva.
Cigarette smoking has taken it's toll on her pipes and she sometimes sounds "rough". Enough with the re-doing of these classic hits!! Let's get back to original music and stop "re-visiting" your own hits that need not be touched! Dionne's son has done a great job with production but the guest stars on this CD are the hilite and also helped sell it.
A really good CD with original tunes as well as the classic Sting tune, "Fragile" produced by the late great Luther Vandross. Let's see what Dionne cooks up for her next release Give her the props, she's still a well respected artist and pop Diva and I am still a fan. Although at first this does seems haphazard, Dionne Sings Dionne is a fun and skilled effort.

You changed the old standards with hip hop beat I love you but this is not good. My most favorite song in the world now hip hop? Please get an orchestra and do you!!
NOT this I have loved the music of Dionne Warwick for over 50 years. I can remember hearing all of those great Burt Bacharach and Hal David songs as they were released on singles in the 's. I was so excited to hear that Warwick had a new record out. But She's Back is a complete and total disappointment. She still has a great voice but there is not a decent new song in this collection.
The collaborations with other artists all fall flat. Even worse is the attempt to remake some of her classic hits in an attempt to sound contemporary. It is all just sad. Dionne Warwick is an American treasure. She is classic and classy and she needs classic and classy material that matches her impeccable style.
She is one of the last artists who should be trying this kind of makeover. I am always surprised - that people seem to be surprised - that at 78 she doesn't sound like she did at 28 or 48 - folks - get a reality check. I know I will be playing this a lot - I am enjoying it more than her last couple of CD's - since it is more new material and fewer "remakes" of old hits- and the remakes this time around - are much more redone than previous CD's.Shop My Friends & Me.
